Fes­tive Fundraiser The fayre of st john’s

Hong Kong Tatler - - Soiree -

Fes­tive cheer abounded as the great and the good of Hong Kong packed St John’s Cathe­dral for an evening of Christ­mas mu­sic, which raised nearly HK$2 mil­lion for Maggie’s Can­cer Car­ing Cen­tre in Tuen Mun. The event was in­spired by The Fayre of St James, an an­nual carol con­cert in Lon­don that also aids Maggie’s cen­tres. Hong Kong’s in­au­gu­ral fundraiser was or­gan­ised by Quintessen­tially Life­style with sup­port from a com­mit­tee in­clud­ing Anne Wang-liu, Clare Keswick, Yolanda Choy-tang and Christy Pow­ell. As well as join­ing the choir for rous­ing ren­di­tions of yule­tide favourites, guests were treated to heart-felt read­ings by Keswick, Olivia Croucher Buck­ing­ham and Jes­sica Jann, and Ron­ald Kwok stepped into the spot­light to sing a med­ley of sea­sonal songs. The mer­ri­ment con­tin­ued at the of­fi­cial af­ter-party at Mott 32.
